ninja 3For this weeks Ass Whoopin Wednesday flick, I was inspired by a documentary that I watched on Netflix called Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story Of Cannon Films. While I was watching, I noticed that they were the company that produced the films Enter The Ninja, Revenge Of The Ninja, and our film for today in Ninja III: The Domination. In this film, a unknown ninja (David Chung) goes on a killing spree, but when the cops show up to stop him, he transfers himself into an unsuspecting woman named Christie (Lucinda Dickey). Through her, he will seek revenge on the police officers who killed him, but only one man can save her and that is another ninja (Shô Kosugi). The film also stars Jordan Bennett (Bert Rigby, You’re A Fool) as Billy, Dale Ishimoto (Beverly Hills Ninja) as Okuda, James Hong (Big Trouble In Little China) as Miyashima, Earl W. Smith (Death Valley) as Jefferson, Steven Lambert (Payback) as pilot, and the film was directed by Sam Firstenberg (American Ninja). Before we get into the review of the film, let’s check out some stats:

girl ninja 2This is one of the biggest pictures I have ever had to make for this particular blog piece, but it’s because it’s a little complicated. The first ninja goes on a ass kicking spree in the beginning and he takes over the main stars body. So on his intial run, he has a total of 25 kills/knockouts before he transfers himself. He has no origin story other than the fact that Sho remembers him from the past. H ehas no love interest and no friends. Lucinda Dickey who plays Christie has a total of 22 kills/knockouts, but she also has no origin story. She in fact has a love interest and he gets pretty banged up at times in the film. She has something to do with the big boss being defeated, but it’s up to our main man Yamada. Yamada has a total of 17 kills/knockouts, no origin story, and no love interest. However in a flashback, ypu do see a family member of his murdered by the first ninja in the pic and he defeats the big boss and saves the day. The film is very interesting to say the least because it combines the genres of martial arts, action, and horror into one film which may have sounded like a great idea, but didn’t really pan out that way. The film is like The Exorcist meets American Ninja is how I would describe it, but without any scary parts. Some of the sequences in the film also didn’t make a lot of sense to me especially the relationship with the cop. One minute she’s telling him how much she hates cops and the next minute she’s pouring V8 juice on her chest for him to lick. So as you can see, all I can say is that it’s an interesting movie that could have easily fit in with Cheeseball Cinema. I am going to give the film 3 fists out of five for a final grade.
